OUR LATEST FEATURE FUNDING IS SITEWIDE!
As many of you know, this past Monday wrapped up our biggest design challenge yet! With a grand prize of $20,000, the challenge introduced funding, our latest feature that offers a whole new way to get designs printed, and received nearly 4,000 submissions. We were thrilled with the results (and have all of you to thank for participating!), and are now super excited to announce that funding is officially being launched sitewide! What does that mean? It means that starting today, funding will apply to all submissions, both general and those specific to design challenges, from now until the end of time. So basically, forever. Yeah!
Also, initially launching funding within one design challenge allowed us to get a good feel for how certain aspects of the feature were working. After keeping a close eye on things and gathering lots of awesome feedback from you guys, we’ve made a few improvements to make it even better. Funding is all about giving you guys lots more opportunities, whether it’s helping our artists get paid or giving our community more power over what we print, so we want to be sure the feature benefits you guys the absolute best it can.
Here’s a few of the things we’ve improved for funding:
Price! Funding a tee will now cost $20 instead of $25. Because… we love you guys.
Shipping cost! Who likes expensive shipping? Nobody, that’s who. Therefore, funded designs will now ship domestically FOR FREE, and internationally for only $5!
Funding time! Designs will now be up for funding for a full 10 days, instead of 7. That’s 3 whole extra days to get lots of monies behind your design!
A few other things to note:
Funding will go into effect for all currently running design challenges as of today (which includes Fall Colors, Psychedelic, Bad High School Mascots, and Watercolors), although only submissions from today forward will be eligible for funding. Anything submitted to those challenges before today will not be eligible for funding.
In special circumstances for certain design challenges, it is possible we won’t be able to offer funding. Typically, this will only happen if we’re partnering with someone and they restrict the funding option.
- Due to funding price drop, we will no longer be offering a promo code for artists to share. We figured that was a bit of a hassle for everyone to track down this code, so instead, we decided to simplify things by simply lowering the price across the board.
We wish you all a whole bunch of success with funding, and truly believe you will all do awesome things with it. Please continue to let us know how it’s working for you; your feedback is the most valuable thing we can get our hands on!
